Hey everyone,

Ill try and explain this as best i can lol.  I have made a bag which is sort of a tote shape, but with panels down the sides to make the bag more roomy/boxy.  ive sewn the lining in (doh) and now need a zip on the top.  I made the zip up with the two rectangles on each side so it was wide enough, but it isnt long enough gah! Im wanting (i dont know if this is even possible) to have a completely closed top bit, no open bits at the top and bottom of the zip.  I would say the rough measurements of the bag are 4x14inches (thats the top measurements so you know how wide it is) do i need to add fabric to the top and  bottom of the zip? Im soo confused!!!

Thanks for reading and i appreciate any help! Smiley

You could just add to the top & bottom the amount you need & do it so that it was meant to be (do a decorative stitch at the seams) & no one will no it was too short. OR - Because it's only that rectanglar piece, you could just rip out the zipper & start all over again w/the right dimensions. I have ripped out stuff a lot because of pieces being too short - it does get frustrating.
